Coach Maxwell Konadu is sweating on the fitness of Emmanuel Keyekeh, Mudasiru Salifu, Richard Senanu and Kwame Adom Frimpong. However, he received a boost on Monday, following the return of captain Felix Annan from injury.
Annan sustained the injury on match day two during the game against Berekum Chelsea at the Golden City park. The Porcupine Warriors boast of one clean sheet (1-0) against Legon Cities, having conceded one goal each against Eleven Wonders and Berekum Chelsea.
Left back Patrick Asmah was the toast of fans in the game against Legon Cities as one of his incisive crosses from the left side resulted in the goal.
